da Costa, Delson
Fractures of the zygomatic-orbital complex have been described as common in the midface traumas. The surgical approach election is an important decision when there is a risk of interference to function, aesthetics or an association of both. The pursuit of techniques that offer adequate visualization of the interested area associated with low morbidity has been responsible for the development of new techniques and materials. The better approach still remains with a lot of controversy among different authors. However, the transconjunctival incision can be considered in access fractures of the zygomatic-orbital complex.
